Devotees appreciate the authentic onsen (Japanese-style baths) atmosphere of this 20-acre Japanese-inspired spa and boutique inn a few miles northeast of town. The 13 light and airy hillside cottages are settled down a piñon-covered hill below the first-rate spa, which is tremendously popular with day visitors. The sleek, uncluttered accommodations have marble or stone wood-burning fireplaces, fine woodwork, iPod docks, low-slung beds or futons, and courtyards
or patios; two come with full kitchens, but breakfast is included in the rates. The facility has private and communal indoor and outdoor hot tubs and spa treatments. Overnight guests can use the communal tubs for free. A hip izakaya-style restaurant, Izanami, opened in fall 2013.
